FenWest 2017: Aluminum Framed Glazing Systems
October 24, 2017 at 2:15 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+0
Andy Lang, Building Science Specialist, will be presenting Performance of Aluminum Framed Glazing Systems Subject to Seismic Displacements at 2:15 p.m. on October 24.
This presentation describes the design and installation of aluminum framed glazing systems to accommodate lateral displacements when subject to seismic drift of the building structure. The presentation includes stick built and unitized curtain walls as well as window walls. Examples will be presented of how aluminum framed glazing systems performed when subject to lateral displacement during laboratory mock-up testing.
